[laughter] no, no, no, not true. why i say that is because that is what they do. even if it's a joke. they are people. they are some of my favorite people but they don't own the turf that is ridiculed. so why is the uncool thing important to win an election? the reason people like barack obama is because he is cool. he is a community activist, an organizer. how did t

family in america will see their income taxes automatically go up on january 1st. i'm assuming that doesn't sound too good to you. that's sort of like the lump of coal you get for christmas. that's a scrooge christmas. >> welcome back to "the ed show." president obama will hit the road again monday bringing his message to the people of detroit. the president has asked the american people to put pressure on congress to accept a deal in fiscal cliff negotiations. the white house is pulling out all stops and cranking up the social media campaign. president obama has been encouraging supporters to tweet with the #my2k, explaining what a $2,000 tax increase would mean for them and their families. the white house reports the hash tag has appeared in over 275,000 tweets with twitter seeing more than 18,000 tweets per hour add its peak. the road show coupled with the social media campaign is unprecede unprecedented. this is the kind of effort that helped president obama win a second term. now we'll see if his grassroots army can convince republicans to do what's right by the american people. i'm

of the warm weather in america, but on calvin klein, that's the one i think you ought to look at. got to come in, warm weather is going to cause everybody to have jitters. i wish we could forget about politics. until we get a deal, it's bad news for themarket. even for cheap stock like apple.

is a good guy with a gun. >> even supporters of the nra called the organization out of touch with america. lawmakers and top educators fired back. they say any solution also needs to include gun control and mental health care. >> i don't believe that the only way to stop violence by guns is to give the other person a gun. >> -- have acknowledged that armed police officers may be a part of the solution, but also add that's going to cost money and wouldn't necessarily prevent another shooting like last week's tragedy in newtown from happening again. either way, this debate is sure to heat up. more than 400,000 americans have already signed online petitions calling for gun control and president obama has promised to seek legislation next year. reporting live in washington, i'm danielle lee, larry, back to you. >> many thanks. we appreciate the update. >>> now, we had cnn's -- >> i honestly don't understand why you would rather have people be victims of a crime than be able to defend themselves. it's incomprehensible. >> you're unbelievably stupid man, aren't you? >> it seems to me that you'r
, sexual equality. really was a trail blazer. how far do you feel america has now come since then? >> well, we've come pretty far. i think children who are bullied are not very free to be. and anti-bullying is something we should all be thinking about. but one ott things we felt with free to be, it really was part of the women's movement. we were working very hard to have women heard. and it seemed also that you kind of had to start with one 5-year-old at a time and try to get them to start to see that boys and girls could play together, could share the world together. so i think we're getting there. i mean, there are only what about 20 women who are now head of fortune 500 companies that we have about, what, 20 women going into the senate. >> the first female president, of course, next time. >> there are 20 women all over the world who are running countries. so we're late getting to having a leader of a country, but we're getting there. >> when you see what's happened with gay rights in particular, that's moving very fast in america isn't it? >> yes, yes. but it's a long time coming. peop
